“Dirty Little Secrets: Tax Havens in the U.S. and U.K.” was an event held at Open Society Institute-Washington, D.C.
In his book Nicholas Shaxson takes a critical look at offshore tax havens which cost the U.S. $100 billion in lost tax revenue each year and claims that Britain and the United States are the world’s two most important tax havens. He was joined by Rebecca Wilkins to discuss how the U.S. and the U.K. perpetuate the use of tax havens and its impact on the global economy and developing world. They also responded to questions from members of the audience. Sarah Pray moderated.
